This whole situation is indeed stressful and raises many questions, but we’re all gonna make it through. I hear your concerns and it makes totally sense to wonder that kind of thing. Your health is important, whether it’s mental or physical.
I’m really worried about not being able to get my safe foods due to everyone ‘panic buying’.
What if I can’t get my vitamins? I need them to stay some-what healthy.
You’re gonna be okay. I don’t know where you live but in my country, for some meds they decided to restrict the amount that people can buy, so there’s no shortage. Also food producers are still active. Maybe it’s gonna be a bit harder to get the food you need when you go at the grocery store, but as for meds we’re not heading for a food shortage right now.
If I contract the virus I won’t be able to go to the doctors or anywhere, I would be forced to self isolate which would make my mental health even worse.
I’m not particularly concerned for myself, but can’t help thinking about all those people who are in quarantine and might be facing some deep loneliness. As you said, it can impact our mental health. You expressed fears that are absolutely valid and important. And it’s why being in touch with your beloved ones remains important, whether you are physically isolated or not. Also, you can already try to think about what you’d like to do if you are isolated at home at some point. Maybe you have some indoor hobbies? Maybe it’s time to watch your favorite TV shows? To read some books? Doing light exercise? Playing new games? Cleaning a bit your home? Seeking new videos/youtube channels?.. This could be an opportunity for you to relax, to slow down a little and reconnect to yourself.
